I've been a huge Myst fan since the first release, I've even read all the books. When Myst was originally released as an online game I wasn't ready for it, same for a lot of people apparently because the game failed. Now, with the MMO experience I have, and the resurrection of Myst Online on Gametap, I'm interested in giving it a shot. They have a trial period, I'm not sure how long it is, but I'm downloading everything right now. Is anyone else interested in some online adventure and puzzle solving? I'll keep this thread updated with impressions.

I am but I suck at them.  Have NEVER been able to finish one without resorting to walkthroughs.

I plan on messing with it, I am really glad Gametap funded the release of this thing!

Free with Gametap, otherwise a trial/limited play, or subscription.

I've DL'ed everything on Gametap, but haven't fired it up yet.  I generally loathe MMO games, but have never tried an adventure one.  Maybe I should give it a shot...

I'm super tempted - this plus Sam and Max make Gametap pretty appealing.

I remember the original demo for this that came out a couple of years ago, where you wandered around caverns in New Mexico (or something like that).  Same game, right?

Yeah, that's this game Brendan. Basically, deep under Mexico is where D'ni is, so they start you off as an adventurer in Mexico discovering the D'ni caverns. I'm thinking of quitting WoW again or at least heavily scaling back the time I put into it, this one may be better with the time I have.

I am thinking this is the perfect MMO for me, with the limited time I have these days.  Not to mention no monthly fee attached to it.

Ouch, I gave the game a spin and the control scheme is horrid. They seriously need to implement a tutorial or something, I was trying for like 2-3 minutes to hop climb a rock with no success.
